Milan 2013: Dutch designer Frederik Roijé presents a tall outdoor heater shaped like a factory chimney in the Tortona district of Milan this week.

Frederik Roijé's SmokeStack is made from Corten steel, a weathered metal that provides a protective layer around the heater

"The shape of Smokestack refers to memories from the past, being a landmark and symbol of progress," said the designer.

The heater is on show at Torneria, Via Tortona 32, not far from Dezeen's base at the MINI Paceman Garage where we've set up a movie studio as part of our Dezeen and MINI World Tour.

Roijé also recently unveiled a piece of furniture for children combining a chair, table and lamp and a candle holder that resembles a piece of pipe sticking through the wall – see all design by Frederik Roijé.

We'll be in Milan all week hunting out the best design on show, including Studio Job's desk with a golden nose for a drawer handle and a skeletal chair by Nendo inspired by a stiletto heel.
